Vikas Gruh Girls High School
Paldi, Ahmedabad, India
School in the Cloud is dedicated to providing children and students around the globe with a support system to grow and learn. We are focused on building partnerships that will bring students the necessary infrastructure, technological tools, resources and curriculum to drive each individual to a successful and happy lifestyle. Our primary focus is aimed at public schools, orphanages and raising funds for the building of schools in developing pockets of the world.
Once the institution is in place, we take it upon ourselves to fill them with the necessary fundamentals, philosophies, technologies and resources for our students to succeed. Our educational approach is rooted in design thinking and application concepts so students are able to physically see and build as they learn. We believe it is critical for our students to imagine, learn, apply and share as they continue to build their skills.
The Faces of Vikas Gruh
A place to make (almost) anything with nearly everyone
FabLab is a design oriented lab with a creative engine. It is an opportunity for anyone to learn, collaborate, design and build while leveraging state of the art technological tools and resources. These labs will be located within the local schools, communities and universities, and will ultimately bridge the gap between innovators and their creations. This platform is where people from all backgrounds and skill levels can work together to innovate their ideas, tackle community/local issues, apply class learnings to projects, and more! Furthermore, FabLab is focused on design thinking that goes beyond STEM skills. While our primary design work might be engineering and design based, we want to take innovation to the next level and incorporate concepts that include designing for medicine/biology, social science, business/economics, agriculture, music, theatre, sports, entertainment and more. Stay tuned as more exciting opportunities are coming to our labs! And if there are technologies, project idea’s or products you think we should be paying attention to, please reach out to us!
A powerful platform for those who want to put their work and talents on display. Makerfest is melting pot of innovation and an opportunity for enthusiasts of all kinds to collaborate, share and celebrate on their findings and creations. It is the largest gathering of Makers from all across the nation and is not just another technology event, but a global social movement where anyone who creates and innovates has a chance to showcase, collaborate, form community and dream about making our world a better place, with our inventions, ideas and network. Ultimately, our goal is to monumentalize the learning and exploration of making something new using the already established.
Rajeev Circle Fellowship
RC Fellowship is designed to create, mentor and empower young entrepreneurs from the developing world and have them be linked closely to the Silicon Valley in California. We believe that the Valley will be a significant force in unleashing the creative potential of entrepreneurs from places where innovation may not have a strong support system. We immerse our Fellows (who we might call warriors soon) in the Valley and set them up with a permanent location in the Bay Area. They leave after their 2 to 3 week Fellowship empowered and confident in the knowledge that they now have “family” in bay area. They will be supported by our volunteer Rajeev Circle group in every regard – regular video meetings, business plan polishing, connecting to VC and angel friends, future visits, and advice on exit options.
Their dream is to spark off disruptive ideas, activities and technologies through our entrepreneurs and have a massive impact on problems in the developing world.
